Monitoring a New Tier

After you have created a tier and assigned nodes to it, AppDynamics will start discovering new business transactions for that tier, and will apply any existing policies and health rules to that tier. However, to make sure that you are accurately monitoring all activity related to that tier, it's a good idea to go through the same configuration process that you have already completed for your application as a whole and for other tiers in your applications. Some questions to ask yourself include:

  • Does the activity on this tier represent any new business functionality that should be monitored as a new Business Transaction?
  • Is there any new business information that should be instrumented via an Information Point or Service Endpoint?
  • Are there any new classes or methods that should be instrumented with custom instrumentation?
  • Are there new conditions for which alerts should be configured?
  • Does a custom dashboard need to be created or updated to reflect activity on the new tier?

Go through the following documents whenever you add a new tier and customize your configuration as needed.
